The 

Royal Military College 

of Canada 



THERE are few national institutions of more value and in 
terest to the country than the Royal Military College of 
Canada. Notwithstanding this, its object and the work 
it is accomplishing are not sufficiently understood by the 
general public. I 

The College is a Government Institution, designed primarily 
for the purpose of giving instruction in all branches of military 
science to cadets and officers of the Canadian Militia. In fact, 
it corresponds to Woolwich and Sandhurst. 

The Commandant and military instructors are all officers on 
the active list of the Imperial Army, lent for the purpose, and 
there is in addition a complete staff of professors for the civil sub 
jects which form such an important part of the College course. 
Medical attendance is also provided. 

Whilst the College is organized on a strictly military basis, 
the cadets receive a practical and scientific training in subjects 
essential to a sound modern education. 

The course includes a thorough grounding in Mathematics, 
Civil Engineering, Surveying, Physics, Chemistry, French and 
English. 

The strict discipline maintained at the College is one of the 
most valuable features of the course, and in addition, the constant 
practice of gymnastics, drill and outdoor exercises of all kinds 
secures health and excellent physical condition. 

Commissions in all branches of the Imperial Service and Cana 
dian Permanent Force are offered annually. 

The diploma of graduation is considered by the authorities 
conducting the examination for Dominion Land Surveyor to be 
equivalent to a university degree, and by the regulations of the 
Law Society of Ontario, it obtains the same exemptions as a 
B.A. degree. 

The length of the course is three years, in three terms of 9 
months each. 

The total cost of the course, including board, uniform, instruc 
tional material, and all extras, is about $800. 

The annual competitive examination for admission to the 
College takes place in May of each year, at the headquarters of 
the several military districts. 

For full particulars regarding this examination and for any 
other information, application should be made to the Secretary 
of the Military Council, Ottawa, Ont.; or to the Commandant, 
Royal Military College, Kingston, Ont. ! January. 1912

In 1862 Dr. Morgan established " The Canadian Parliamentary Com 
panion," which he edited and published annually up to 1876; and, in

wise edited and published, annually, up to 1887. 



" More general contributions to history are the works of the Abbe Faillon, of Mr. 
Parkman, of Dr. Scadding, of the Abbe Laverdiere, of Sir J. M. Le Moine, of Judge 
Haliburton, of Mr. Fennings Taylor, of Dr. Miles, of the Abbe Casgrain, of Col. Gray, 
of Mr. Louis Turcotte, of Mr. Charles Lindsey, of Dr. George Stewart, and of Dr. H. J. 
Morgan. We might add very largely to this list, which serves rather to show the variety 
of ways in which historical talent may be advantageously occupied than to sum up what 
has been accomplished. Of all these writers there is none who is more deserving of the 
gratitude of his fellow-citizens than the last-mentioned. Hardly a day passes, indeed, 
in which we, as journalists, do not refer for information to some of Dr. Morgan s various 
stores of information, and rarely do we refer to them in vain." Montreal Gazette,

PREFACE. 



THE first edition of " Canadian Men and Women of the Time " 
appeared in 1898. It comprised a volume of 1,118 pages, royal 
octavo, and included, approximately, 2,891 sketches of living char 
acters. Of these over 900, or almost 33 per cent., have since died. 

The volume met with a warm reception and was more than ordin 
arily successful. Its circulation was large, and extended to the re 
motest corners of the world. It was and is to be found in all the 
principal public libraries of Europe, Asia and America, as well as in 
a great many private collections. It was largely used by the news 
paper press, mostly, however, without acknowledgment, a species of 
plagiarism into which a portion of the Fourth Estate seems to have 
fallen, in the present day, without any apparent sense of shame. 

Various works, modelled upon the same lines as the present one, 
have since been started in Canada, but none of them have answered 
the public expectation hence a demand has arisen for a second edi 
tion of " Canadian Men and Women of the Time," to meet which the 
present volume has been prepared. Like its predecessor, the Editor 
trusts that.it may be found accurate, trustworthy, and up-to-date. It 
is certainly as complete, as regards the number of characters repre 
sented, as well as the facts and information touching them, as 
circumstances have permitted. If any name of importance has been 
omitted, the fault, upon examination, will be found not to rest with 
the Editor, but with someone more directly concerned. 

The volume now submitted will be found to contain a greater 
number of names than the previous one, some 7,900 sketches being 
included within its folds. Of these some have died while the book 
was being published, but any such occurrences, with other unforeseen 
changes, will be found to be duly recorded in their proper place. 

A second volume, embracing portraits of the persons represented 
herein, will appear just as soon as all the portraits have been collected 
for the purpose. 

The Editor has been indebted to many persons for various cour 
tesies and other assistance received during the preparation of the 
book. A list of these ladies and gentlemen is subjoined, and to one

Allan, Miss Maud, dancer. 

B. Toronto ; at 4 yrs. of age re 
moved to San Francisco, where her 
father became a naturalized Am. citi 
zen ; took a scholarship at the Cogs 
well Poly. Coll., San Francisco ; com 
menced studying the piano at age of 
5, and made her first appearance as a 
pianist at 12 ; soon afterwards went 
to Europe to continue her studies ; 
spent 5 yrs. at the Berlin Royal Acad. 
High Sch. of Music, and took the high 
est diploma for piano-playing ; later, 
abandoned her intention of becoming 
a professional musician, deciding to 
become a dancer instead, her idea 
being to represent music by dancing ; 
after much fresh study, she made her 
first appearance as a dancer before an 
invited audience at the Conser. of 
Music, Vienna, in 1902 ; she was 
highly complimented by the press ; her 
first public appearance took place at 
the Theatre Moliere, Brussels, and she 
subsequently performed at Berlin, 
Buda Pesth, Hamburg and Paris, at 
all of which places she aroused much 
enthusiasm ; at London, where she 
appeared in " The Vision of Salome," 
early In 1908, she became the rage, 
and had the honour of dancing before 
the la/te King and the present Queen 
Mother (g.v.) ; subsequently she suc 
cessfully appeared in N. Y. ; has writ 
ten and published her life ; " is proud 
to claim Can. as <he,r country." Care 
Canadian Office, London, Eng. 

" As Salome she has brought pose 
dancing to perfection. Her costume gives 
a luxurious impression of Oriental gor- 
geousness. Her figure is as symmetrical 
as Canova s Venus. Above her slender 
waist it seems to be unconcealed except 
for jewelled trappings. Her feet, which 
are not too small but finely modelled, are 
bare and she gets expression even into her 
pink toes. She impresses her spectators 
by the power of her representation and by 
the varied intensities of her facile expres 
sion, and, best of all, she does not appeal 
to the baser passions." N. Y. World.

commission in a competition for the 
figure of Peace, which crowns the To

figures, the central one representing 
Can., on each side of which is a figure

the regt. losing during the day about 
90 men from artillery in killed, 
wounded, and prisoners ; the army re 
turned to Virginia almost immediately, 
and was moved up the Shenandoah 
Valley, and by way of Front Royal 
to Culpepper, Va., where Gen. Banks 
established his headquarters, B. being 
with his regt. throughout ; Aug. 8, 
1862,, Banks moved his centre south 
from Culpepper to Cedar Mountain, the 
10th Maine being in advance ; on the 
following day the regt. participated in 
one of the most desperate and bloody 
battles of the war, the numbers en 
gaged being 1 considered ; during the 
early part of the day it was an artil 
lery fight, with small loss on either 
side ; a bout 4 in the afternoon the 10th 
Maine became engaged with the Con 
federate infantry ; the conflict was 
short, not more than 20 minutes, yet 
in that time Co. D., commanded by 
Capt. B., lost 10 men shot dead and 
22 wounded, out of a total of 45 ; on 
the evening otf Aug. 9, B. was taken 
prisoner, on the picket line, and was 
sent to Richmond, where he was con 
fined a prisoner of war in Libby 
prison ; after 3 months he was ex 
changed and sent to Camp Parole, 
Annapolis, Md. ; he joined his regt. as 
It was crossing the Potomac River, 
near Harper s Ferry ; in the early part 
of 1&63, -Co. D., witbh two other co. s 
of the 10th Maine, having been formed 
into a batt. and attached to the head 
quarters of the 10th Army Corps, 
under Genl. Slocum, B., as senior offr. 
of the batt., commanded it at head 
quarters ; was present with it at Chan- 
cellorsville, May 1, 2, and 3, and at 
the Battle of Gettysburg, July 2, 3, 
and 4, 1863 ; in the fall of that year 
went with ihis corps to Tenn., to rein 
force Rosencranz, who had been de 
feated at Chickamauga and driven into 
Chattanooga by Genl. Bragg; during 
the winter of 1863-4 B. commanded his 
batt. at Shelbyville, Tenn. ; from this 
point his command was transferred to 
the 29th Maine, then serving in the 
19th Corps (Emery s), joining it at 
Morganza, La., Mississippi River ; soon 
afterwards they were moved to New 
Orleans, and were sent by sea, under 
sealed orders, ultimately to Fortress 
Monroe, to reinforce Grant s army of 
the Potomac ; on reaching there, how 
ever, their destination was changed to 
Washington, where they landed, within 
hearing of the Confederate guns under 
Early, on the other side of the city ; 
having marched across the city they 
joined the forces close in under the 
walls ; Early s troops fell hack and 
finally retreated up the Potomac River 
and south through the Shenandoah 
Valley ; B. s corps then passed under 
Genl. Sheridan s command, and took 
part in the Valley campaign under that 
commander, which finally resulted in 
the entire destruction of Early s army ; 
promoted major in the 109th Regt. 
Infantry, U.iS.C. troops, he was mus 
tered into the service of the U. S. as 
such Sept. 23, 1864 ; ordered from its 
location in Ky. to the army of the 



Potomac, it took position on the north 
side of the James River, in front of 
Confederate Fort Harrison, and par 
ticipated in the siege of Richmond ; 
Mch., 1865, B., having conceived the 
idea of raising a regt. of sharpshooters, 
to be armed with Spencer rifles, then 
coming into use, and being strongly 
supported in his application to the War 
Office by Genl. Slocum, then command 
ing the left wing of Howard s army, 
tendered his resignation and was 
hiomourably discharged from. the army, 
in order that he might be free to carry 
out his intention, but before he could 
give effect to it, Grant broke the Con 
federate lines at Petersburg, and the 
collapse of the Confederacy followed ; 
Apl., 1897, was apptd. by Gov. J. R. 
Bodwell of Maine a commr. for pur 
chasing and improving land and erect 
ing monuments thereon, in commemor 
ation of the soldiers from Maine who 
fell at Gettysburg ; after the war B. 
went into business at Richmond, Va., 
where he continued until 1873, remov 
ing thence to Cairo, W. Va., where he 
purchased a large tract of timber land ; 
in 1878 he went to Arkansas, where he 
built a narrow-gauge railroad from 
Hope to Washington, Ark.; in 1882 he 
changed the gauge of this road and 
extended it to Nashville, a distance of 
about 25J miles ; It is known as the 
Arkansas & Louisiana Railroad ; in 
1886 he sold the road to Jay Gould 
and, in 1887, began the construction of 
another railroad from Magnolia, Ark., 
to Natchitoches, La., a distance of 115 
miles ; this road, known as the Louis 
iana and Northwest Railroad, he sold 
to a St. Louis syndicate, in 1905 ; fol 
lowing this, he built an electric system, 
comprising a street railroad of 6J miles, 
a light and power plant, an ice plant, 
and an amusement park, at Mineral 
Wells, Texas, which he still owns ; m.

often Importuned to enter Parlt. ; in 
the year mentioned was elected both 
to the Ho. of Commons and the Legis 
lature ; was immediately offered the 
leadership of his party in the latter 
body, but it was not till 1869 that he 
consented to accept that position ; on 
the defeat of the Sandfleld Macdonald 
govt., Dec., 1871 (an event largely due 
to his efforts), was called upon to form 
a new Admn., and succeeded in the 
task; he himself took the office of 
Presdt. of the Council without salary ; 
on the abolishment of dual representa 
tion, some time later, resigned the 
Premiership with the view of devoting 
the whole of his attention to Federal 
politics; in the H.C. he was urged to 
accept the leadership, but declined the 
honour ; was, nevertheless, one of the 
greatest champions in the well-remem 
bered contest over the Pacific Scandal, 
which resulted in the downfall of Sir 
John A. Macdonald ; when Mr. Mac 
kenzie became Prime Minister of Can., 
accepted a position in his cabinet, with 
out office ; was sworn of the Privy 
Council, Nov. 7, 1873 ; in Feb., 1874, re 
signed owing to Ill-health ; In May, 1875, 
accepted office as Minr. of Justice, 
and while such undertook an official 
mission to Eng., touching amendments 
to the law of extradition, etc. ; was 
mainly instrumental In perfecting the 
constitution of the Supreme Ct. of Can. 
at Its establishment, and personally 
selected the judges first apptd. thereto ; 
after the defeat of the Mackenzie Govt. 
at the polls, 1878, was chosen leader 
of the Lib. party in the H.C., In place 
of the ex-Premier, whose health had 
become impaired by his arduous official 
labours ; remained in that position until 
after the g.e. of 1887, when he retired 
and was succeeded by Mr. (now Sir 
W. ) Laurier ; subsequent to that event 
took no prominent part either in the 
debates in the House, or in the general 
work of his party; at the g.e., 1890, 
declined renominatlon, and sent to his 
constituents in West Durham a letter 
expressing his views of the condition 
and prospects of the country ; this 
letter was believed to be of the greatest 
Importance, but it was not published 
until after the elections ; when the 
letter was made public It created a 
genuine sensation, for it not only an 
nounced the great leader s retirement 
from political life, but expressed the 
gravest forebodings concerning the 
future of Can. ; " The splendid oratory 
and brilliant genius of Mr. B.," says 
Mr. Adams (q.v.), from whose work of 
biography we have taken some of the 
facts herein, " were keenly missed in 
Parlt., and many were the hopes ex 
pressed that he would reconsider his 
determination, and return to his right 
ful place as leader of his party " ; in 
June, 1892, these hopes were dispelled 
by his acceptance of an invitation ex 
tended to him by the leaders of the 
Irish parliamentary party to accept a 
seat In the Brit. H.C. ; he landed In 
Irel. a few weeks previous to the 
election of 1892, and was received with 
great cordiality ; he stood for the con 
stituency of South Longford and was 
returned by a very large majority ; 
his advent into Imp. politics was made 



under the most auspicious circum 
stances, and fully justified the fondest 
hopes of his friends ; he continued to 
sit for South Longford while he re 
mained a mem. of the Brit. Parlt., and 
did much to popularize the Irish cause 
throughout the Empire ; was presented 
to Queen Victoria, Buckingham Palace, 
July, 1882, and again, subsequently; 
in 1894 he was elected a mem. of the 
Extve. Comte. of the Irish Parliament 
ary party ; in the same year he was in 
cluded In the Royal Comn, apptd. to 
enquire into the financial relations 
between Gt. Brit, and Irel. ; this Comte. 
reported that Irel. was bearing an un 
fair share of taxation, and in 1897 he 
was selected to move an amendment to 
the address in reply to the Queen s 
speech on the subject ; later, he moved 
a substantive resolution thereon ; In 
1895 he went to New Zealand, to serve 
as arbitrator between the New Zealand 
Govt. and the New Zealand Midland 
Ry. Co., and made his award in Dec., 
wholly in favour of the Govt. ; In 1896 
he was one of the comte. of 15 of the 
H.C. appointed to Investigate South 
African affairs and the causes of the 
Transvaal raid ; his cross-examination 
of Cecil Rhodes has been spoken of as 
"a masterly piece of work " ; he was 
very successful in obtaining funds for 
carrying on the work of the Irish 
Parliamentary party, and contributed 
himself largely thereto ; to the election 
fund of the McCarthyite wing of the 
Nationalist party. 1895, his subscrip 
tion was 1,000 ; was arbitrator for 
Nfd. in the Reid-Nfd. Govt. case, 1904- 
5 ; in the same year was elected chair 
man of Comtes. (H.C.) ; was the first 
(and for 14 yrs. continuously) presdt. 
of the Toronto Genl. Trusts Co. ; on his 
resignation of the offloe, 1896, the 
other directors of the Co. presented 
the Ont. Legislature with his portrait 
in oils, " to mark their esteem for him 
and their appreciation of his services 
in some lasting way " ; throughout his 
career, his Interest in education and 
especially higher education has been 
most marked ; he was elected Chan 
cellor of the Univ. of Toronto, 1873 ; 
in 1888 he gave ?2,500 to found 
scholarships In political science in that 
institution, and in 1891 he agreed to 
give $20,000 as a fund towards en 
dowing junior matriculation scholar 
ships therein ; after the destruction of 
tiie buildings of the Univ. by fire, 1890, 
he gave largely to the rebuilding fund, 
and did much otherwise to assist In 
the work of restoration ; he declined 
a K. C. M. G., for his public services, 
1876 ; was a del. to the 3rd Com 
mercial Congress, London, 1893, at 
a dinner given in Ms honour In 
Toronto, Feb., 1894, he called him 
self an " Irishman, and an Imperialist, 
not in a jingo sense, but an Imperialist 
in the fullest sense of the word, and 
with the belief that the destiny of the 
Brit. Empire is to occupy the foremost 
position as a civilizer and Christian- 
izer throughout the whole world " ; con 
tinuing, lie said, " he looked forward 
to the granting of Home Rule to Irel. 
in the near future, and thereafter to 
seeing systems of local govt. estab 
lished in all the great historical and
